happy holidays!

It has been a whirl-wind of a month.  

It would be foolish of me to expect any less from this month of holiday cheer.  From parties, to shopping, gift wrapping to card addressing, every day is filled with so much to do.  And every day is filled with memorable moments.  

I am forcing myself to slow down this month and enjoy the season.  This means less blog posts, no December Daily, and more reflecting.  It means more moments like this:

And more time to create some new holiday decor:
To make the wreaths: simply tie a ball of yarn to a foam wreath form, and wrap, and wrap, and wrap.  It helps to watch a fun Christmas movie while you do this, or pass it to your kid and claim that you have to go make dinner ;).  Tack an ornament to the foam wreath to hang in the center.
To make the book page wreath: tape several old book pages side by side (mine used about 12 pages), accordion fold them, glue the two ends to one another to form a ring, carefully squash the ring flat holding the center together.  Embellish the center with a paper doily and flat ornament.

Simply more time to experience the magic:
Because the magic is everywhere.

Wishing all of you a blessed and magical season of peace and love.
